Review: iPhone 3G
      #30833 - 07/16/08 01:21 AM

Another year and another iPhone has hit the market, this time worldwide, with just as much fanfare as the first model. Though the iPhone 3G adds only a few new features, they're big ones: 3G HSDPA and a GPS. Other improvements include better audio, improved Bluetooth and that nifty new 2.0 iPhone operating system pre-installed, which adds support for 3rd party applications that are easy to download and install via iTunes on the desktop or directly to the iPhone. The phone has a curvy back that feels better in hand and looks great, though it's slippery as heck. The iPhone 3G is a quad band GSM world phone with worldwide HSDPA support, and it's sold by AT&T in the US.

So I am FINALLY eligible to get a 16 gig iPhone 3G for $300. But I've heard so many horror stories about the iPhone cracking, locking up, and not working very seamlessly with Exchange servers. Plus, the virtual keyboard on the portrait mode is horrible, and Apple refuses to provide for a landscape keyboard other than in Safari. What gives? I am debating between getting the iPhone, the Nokia E71, and perhaps yet another Windows Mobile phone ... gulp! I have the original Blackjack now. Anyone has any suggestions? The iPhone just looks very cool, and obviously, it would be great to use it as an iPod too. But if it's going to crack, lock up, and not work well w/ Exchange ... aarghh. If someone who has had their iPhone and used it w/ Exchange for a while could comment on their experience, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
